  • I visited last year, and there is one display in particular that stole the show for me. It's a cut-away view of a piston rotary engine that moves in slow motion when you press a pedal to start an electric motor. VERY cool to see how the parts work together! There are some jet engines also, and many interesting technical displays, as well as historical information for the history buffs. There is even an actual used Space Shuttle tire. Well worth the $10 suggested donation. Free parking on-site.
  • fun museum. good value also a nice family attraction.
  • Simply one of the best aviation museums I've ever been to. Lived in Nova Scotia for twenty years and never actually visited. Don't make my mistake! Wonderful collection of aircraft and artifacts and very well maintained considering they run on donations and volunteers. The museum is only a stone's throw from Halifax International Airport, and right off the highway. You have no excuse not to visit. Help keep this treasure open by visiting, making a donation and buy some souvenirs in the nicely stocked gift shop. Aviation buffs and modellers take note, they have an extensive stock of books and model kits. Keep up the great work!
  • Quite a large collection of aircraft on display
  • Staff is very knowledgeable, beautiful collection, and a cute gift shop! A must to stop in!
